Prince Philip: The Plot to Make a King

CHAN­NEL 4, 9PM

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Television -

The in­side story of the dy­nas­tic ten­sions that were un­leased when Princess El­iz­a­beth, the fu­ture queen, fell in love with Prince Philip. It was felt that Philip was rough and ill-man­nered - and with the Sec­ond World War still fresh in most peo­ple’s minds, the royal and po­lit­i­cal elite dis­liked his Ger­man roots. But fol­low­ing the death of King Ge­orge VI in 1952, the es­tab­lish­ment feared a dy­nas­tic coup, with the Queen torn be­tween the two sides. The doc­u­men­tary ex­am­ines the com­plex­i­ties and frus­tra­tions of the royal mar­riage.
